The YBCA Fellows program brings together creative individuals from across the Bay Area – artists and everyday people alike – to engage in a yearlong process of inquiry, dialogue, and project generation.

Past Fellowship cohorts explored and responded to a question that emerged from our annual YBCA 100 Summit and together they used art and culture to inspire community transformation. Fellows projects were presented during our Public Square took the form of performance or visual presentations, writing, screenings, visual arts, workshops, etc. These projects provide platforms to share new ideas and information and drive new possibilities into the public imagination.
